Does anyone love Monday mornings?
Mondays are definitely not a showcase of me on my mom A game, especially late in the school year when the girls are already mentally checking out for summer. Add to today the added pressure of the big boss at my company flying down from New York to my Nashville office and I was feeling the need to get the girls to school early and myself to the office early. And add to all the normal Monday morning pressure an Easter hangover from Peeps and jelly beans and I knew it would be tough to get myself out of bed, much less the girls.
I made sure our coffee was ready to brew and I got up before 6 a.m. At least I would be ready early to compensate for all the extra “get in the car” urgency.
I had an outfit laid out for today, a black skirt with a sleeveless ruffle top and snakeskin flats, which is definitely a notch above my usual rainy Monday office casual jeans and a t-shirt. I kept smoothing down my skirt all morning while getting ready, annoyed but ignoring the odd lumpy seam at my waistline. I kept blowing it off to one too many helpings of sweet potato casserole.
And then it dawned on me.
I had my skirt on completely INSIDE OUT.
Of course this is a much more happy scenario than that time years ago when I was an anxious recent college grad on her first week at the new job and my slip fell off while I was walking to new employee orientation. That’s another blog post for another day.
So tell me about a wardrobe malfunction you’ve had, or one you’ve narrowly avoided. I think we’ve all done the one navy shoe and one black shoe thing. Right? (Please tell me I’m not the only one.)
p.s. Check my review and shopping blog out this week. I’m giving away a gift certificate for Jewel Kade jewelry, which is fantastic! You really SHOULD get yourself a little something for Mother’s Day, you know. I’ve also posted some Etsy finds just in time for Mother’s Day gifting.
